Corey Feldman Responds to a Tweet from Paris Jackson: 'I Hope One Day We Can Talk' About Michael
The actor and musician has faced a lot of criticism for his performance on the Today show earlier this month
Feldman made headlines when he gave a curious performance of his song “Go 4 It” on the Today show. He’s received a lot of support since the negative social media backlash, and even a surge on the Billboard charts. But now, the musician and actor, 45, took to Twitter to share a positive message with Michael Jackson‘s daughter Paris.
“@ParisJackson U don’t deserve ANY of it! I hope 1 day we can talk, as Id LOVE 2 tell U + things about your father when he was a young man,” Feldman said in response to a tweet he received from the 18-year-old model on Saturday.
Jackson tweeted out to Feldman with the message, “@Corey_Feldman anything you do that makes u happy, people are going to hate on it.. but if you’re happy then it doesn’t matter. hope ur well.”
Jackson has dealt with harsh criticism on social media, particularly when she was harassed for not posting a Father’s Day message honoring her late father in June. Earlier this month, Jackson shared a since-deleted Instagram video pleading fans to be more kind, according to TMZ.
Jackson joins several others – including his Stand By Me costar Jerry O’Connell and Kesha – who has stood by Feldman, who tearfully expressed his agony over the negative comments about his performance.
Feldman continued to talk about his experience on The Talk last Tuesday.
“I wanted people to see the real emotion I was feeling,” he said. “I wanted people to see, I am not fake, I am a real person and this affects me – I am made of flesh and blood and emotion.”
